Co-op offers members chance to join its board
Co-op is offering members with board-level experience the opportunity to stand for election to its group board.
The group currently has two vacancies for Member Nominated Directors.
Co-op is owned by nearly five million active member owners and exists to create value for them and their communities. Directly elected by Co-op members, Member Nominated Directors oversee the group’s business interests in food, funeralcare, legal and insurance.
Sam Webster, vice-president of the Co-op National Members’ Council and chair of the Joint MND selection and approvals committee, said: “We encourage applicants from all walks of life and backgrounds who share our values and principles and our dedication to realising equality and equity.
“We champion inclusion and we are proud of how diverse our board is; we look forward to welcoming candidates keen to strive for the highest standards of equality within our Co-op and the wider world.”
Co-op members will have the final say on who is appointed as a Member Nominated Director by voting from a shortlist of candidates next year.
